Thankful Thursday: Hooray for Pet Adoptions on National Adoption Weekend

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!As I’m sure most of you know, this past weekend was the Pet At PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend. You know how much we all love adoptions, even our recent ones.  Adoptions always warm our hearts.

I know, I know, I’m preaching to the choir here, but I simply can’t over emphasize how important it is for us to promote pet adoptions on a regular basis.  We are the lucky ones, and I’m so thankful for that, every single day.  Our local shelters work so hard on behalf of so many and any help they can get is seriously appreciated, trust me, I know that first paw.

Four of us here were adopted from Kitten Action Team who operates out of one of our local PetSmart Stores.  We’re thankful to PetSmart Charities for pulling this together each year and for helping to fund so many important causes.

What are you thankful for this week?  Here’s one case where I don’t mind being repetitively redundant…Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We’ve been slacking off on promoting adoption lately… but I’m trying to figure out a new angle to put on it. I never, ever want people to get tired of this topic!

I’m thankful to have a forum to perhaps help a cat find a forever home. I know I don’t post enough about adoptable cats but I do share.

We usually promote adoptions, but of course our blog is kind of focused that way. We love when our blogging pals join in the fun! Hugs to you all, and thank you for all you do for kitties everywhere!

Being the “recipient” of the best forever home possible, I certainly wish that for all the other animals in the world who want the safety, love and PERMANENCE of a happy home. You all do such a wonderful job of promoting that, we’re so proud to know you!

Hugs, Sammy

It is good to write about those kitties and doggies that need homes. You just never know when someone will see that particular animals and just have to have it. But we also need to write about it more often here. We just hope that all homeless animals could find a great home.

Those of us who have been adopted into a home are fortunate and it’s great to promote those in need so they can find a forever home too.

A fine reason to be repetitive indeed. Adopt away at every feed.

We are both adopted by Mum from a house that had over 100 cats living there. We have been very fortunate that she is a loving Mum and took both of us home with her.

Every kitty deserves a loving home and a full belly. It breaks my heart that there are so many that never know either.

I’m so Thankful for all the rescuers and shelters, especially no kill Sanctuaries who do so much to save lives of kitties and doggies and other animals who would not have a chance other wise.

All of us were adopted. This year, mom is sponsoring the adoption fee for a few adult cats at a local shelter. Hopefully it will encourage someone who is hesitating about adopting an adult cat.

We all come from the shelter. It’s a much better place since Caroline was adopted in 2005 but still it’s so much better when someone takes us home. 🙂
